First Financial to leave downtown

Downtown Weatherford is changing…last week First Financial Bank announced they are leaving their downtown Weatherford location.

The bank will be doing an extensive remodeling of its College Park location next month. Once the College Park remodel is complete, the bank’s executive and lending teams will office at that location and will retire the downtown bank location.

Bank president and CEO Jay Gibbs said decreased transaction volumes along with the fact that the square has become more of a point of destination for entertainment, restaurants, etc. brought First Financial to the realization that the downtown location could better serve as a retail or entertainment venue. They will be looking for a new owner of the historic building. Gibbs said their downtown drive-thru will remain open.
